Windows 7: Asrock RAM Not Regonized At Odd Times!!

Asrock RAM Not Regonized At Odd Times!!

Hello,
Despite all the other motherboard issues I have been having and I am going to gets new board sap but it'll comes down to money and this time it won't be asrock.

Heres my issue,

If have 2 ram sticks to work with if I put the sticks in slot 3 or 4 the machine boots up fine then if I also put the one stick in slot 1 or 2 then the other stick in 3 or 4 machine boots fine but if you put the sticks (even one stick at ä time) in either 1 or 2 or together in these slots the system won't boot and you the ram beep codes.

What could be the issue maybe the CPU or board it wouldn't surprise since my PCI slots and audio codec chip went and the board is only 2 months old
So the first two lot will not work together (without 3 or 4 being in use) or by itself from what I can see from my 2 sticks.
Might just give up on desktops and stick to my windows rt tablet
Not going to afford one for a while now
Hoping to get help

Thanks!

Sorry for all the bumping just giving updates as I go along..

Slot one is working on its own now have not tried it together yet but could that be bad ram sticks?

Edit: One of the ram sticks work in all slots the other stick work in all slots except the first one

This is getting odder by the second lol

The first thing I recommend is getting a copy of your motherboard manual.
Read and understand it.
Only install ram as the manual indicates.
Doing it any other way is a waste of your time.

But it should detect the ram by them selfs in any slots :/

I will say it again.
Only install the ram in the location that the motherboard manual stipulates for the amount of ram module you install.
Their is nothing to argue about; just do it like the motherboard manual indicates. Period.

If you do it that way and still have a problem the members will give other suggestions.

The manual said I was installing it correctly and you should be able to sort a ram by it self in any port since it's only operating with it's self

Someone offering me to swap the boards since the on board audio is blown anyway for A 2011 msi x gaming board.
But it is a ddr board? will that effect gaming?

The audio chip was also blown anyway so that was not a good sign
